IVY: I would like to open an account here.
SUSAN: Alright. What kind of account would you like?
IVY: I'm not sure. I'm new here in America.
I don't know the English words for different kinds of accounts.
SUSAN: Well, most international students open a basic savings account.
IVY: Yes, I know I need to have a basic savings account.
SUSAN: Alright. And did you want to have a checking account too?
IVY: Sure. I know a lot of people here use checks. But do I need two accounts?
Do I need a savings account and a checking account?
SUSAN: Well. No, not really.
If you think you will use a lot of checks, maybe you just need a checking account.
But you must be good at managing money then.
IVY: I understand. I don't want to write bad checks.
SUSAN: That's right.
IVY: I think I can have just one account. A checking account.
SUSAN: And did you want to use a cash card with your account?
IVY: Yes. Can I have a cash card too?
SUSAN: Certainly. Here is the form to fill out.
In order to open a checking account here, I also need to see your passport.
IVY: Alright. I brought it with me. Here it is.
SUSAN: Good. And I need to see your student I.D.
IVY: Here it is.
SUSAN: Thank you.
Now if you will fill out that form, I will start to enter your information into the computer.
IVY: Here is the completed application form.
SUSAN: Good. Here is a deposit slip.
Please fill in your name and the amount you want to deposit today.
IVY: Is fifty dollars okay?
SUSAN: Yes, that's fine.
